Why? Mentioned before, Domat was a royally appointed writer and he owed his position to King Louis. Therefore, his duty was to help people realize that King Louis XIV is a great leader, and that the new government is a change going towards the right direction. Since he worked under the king, he wrote “On Social Order and Absolute Monarchy” knowing that he would be able to convince France to accept not only their new king, but the absolute monarchy government. He proved to be very successful once this was read by his attended audience.
Progressives believed that educated professionals should be in charge of making the decisions as the representatives of the public interest. As a historian Warren Susman described this Progressive method in his book Culture as History, the Progressive movement believed that professionals "could give the people not what they believed they wanted but what they knew, through their training, they really wanted." The diplomacy demonstrated this method through the US government's enforcement onto the Central and South American nations. As the US was the global leader in socio-economic status, Knox considered the nation an expert in that field. The nation would be more capable of deciding what was best for the other underdeveloped countries in the surrounding region.
To resolve his problem, he began his political and military career by working with Pompey the Great and Crassus. The three of them worked together and was known as the First Triumvirate they “controlled
All of Parliament was present at the time of Churchill’s speech. I think the setting made the mood more soft and inspirational because Churchill is just informing and persuading the Parliament about what they should do to make the odds more in their favor. He is not coming to break the peace or sabotage the function of the government. “I now invite the House by a resolution to record its approval of the steps taken and declare its confidence in the new government” (Page 1, Paragraph 5). Churchill is declaring that he has a specific mission to the formation of the the victory against Germany.
Being a former governor, Henry had the knowledge of how the government system worked and was a figure who was looked up to in the state of Virginia. He was able to motivate through the use of rhetorical questions, a strong emotional appeal, and speaks directly to the audience in 1st person to influence their opinions personally. One of the main goals of the speech was to bring a sense of nationalism into the colonists through fear of what would happen if the British had control of America. Henry uses first person to bring a sense of mutual bonding to show that he is one of them and wants to help be a part of a movement which drew the people towards him. He encourages the fight by saying “we must fight!
Vargas 5 Ronald Reagan: America’s Leading Man Ronald Reagan, only movie actor to become president, was recognized for his conservative republicanism, fervent anticommunism, policies contributing to demise of the Soviet Union, appealing personal style, skilled as an orator which earned him the title “Great Communicator.” (Britannica) However, Reagan didn’t get this recognition easily, he worked really hard to get to there. Reagan got his start in politics in a televised 1964 address. In this address he makes a sweeping critique of liberalism, big government, and federal payments. (Encyclopedia) In this speech, known as “A Time for Choosing” Reagan used logos, pathos, and mood to invoke people’s feelings about making the right choice when choosing their leader in order for society to have a stronger and successful future. Historical background
In hopes of being able to gain support for their potential future war effort he explicitly makes endeavors to exploit that voice of reason by specifically stating what their interpretation of rights are, what they should be, why they deserve them, and how King George overstepped his boundaries. Jefferson’s use of logos was a fundamental component in later gaining foreign support, that of especially from
Early during King Richard II’s reign as king he seemed to be doing great, but he soon took a drastic downward turn. He was betrayed from within his own family. King Richard II was born to be a leader, but his strong presence in the military would eventually become his downfall. To better establish the personal attributes and leadership qualities of King Richard II, his background must first be understood. He was born in England in the year 1367 and ruled England from 1377 to 1399 (Saul, 1997).
Toner’s three O’s, owing, ordering, and oughting. According to the Barnes Center lesson on Ethical Leadership a leader who possesses this strength shows that they owe others respect and dignity, they understand that they are ordered to do what is right no matter what, they are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice, and understand that they ought to do what is needed to help others no matter how hard that may be. Churchill knew this and it was never more evident than when gave a speech in 1946 from the U.S denouncing the Soviet’s propaganda of spreading communism. According to History.com, Winston Churchill accused the Soviet Union of being the biggest threat to Christian civilization and for trying to spread communism throughout the world. This was the first time that another leader called out the Soviet Union for being a threat to the European values and it was labeled “The Iron Curtain Speech”.
Literature review After being requested to West Point as administrator in 1945, I appropriately reported for directions to the Army head of staff, Dwight D. Eisenhower. Shockingly he restricted his remarks to two focuses, the significance which he joined to the honour framework and his solid feeling that the foundation should incorporate into its educational programs a formal course intended to show cadets the standards of military initiative. In his view, this had never been sufficiently attempted previously in spite of the way that the arrangement for military authority was a prime goal of West Point instruction. Equipped with this command from General Eisenhower, upon assuming control over my obligations I quickly started a basic course
Overall, historians and theorists have predicated the Cold War as a learning experience for future decision-making. However, one can draw similarities in current military actions, like Iraq and Afghanistan, where those can argue not much has changed in the demeanor and action of military leadership to civilian leadership. Overall, Betts provides a thoroughly researched and structured framework for the reader to analyze historical evidence from a different perspective but I found his conclusions to be inherently flawed. Bibliography: Betts, Richard K. Soldiers, Statesmen, and Cold War Crises. Cambridge: Harvard UP, 1977.
America’s First Committee was said to have been formed to give American citizens a voice. It also helped those who were potentially going to be sent to war a voice. Lindbergh, the spokesman for America’s First Committee, believed more time should be spent on strengthening our military rather than waging wars. He believed the policy of America’s First Committee should be, “a policy not of isolation, but of independence; not of defeat, but of courage. It is a policy that led this nation to success during the most trying years of our history, and it is a policy that will lead us to success again.” By strengthening our military, we would deter other countries from invading our homeland.
In the speech, he states that when the occasion arrives, he will use his presidential power, to the fullest. The speech responded to any doubt or worry Americans had. Choosing a president was still a relatively new concept, during that time. He essentially makes a promise to the people, in which they can rely on him to be a leader and representative
The Cold War was over, the Soviet Union no longer existed, and no one took their place as a rival to the United States so what reason, if any, was there to keep the “Washington Rules”. For modern day semiwarriors, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld, there were plenty. Cheney and Rumsfeld were crucial members of the Bush administration with Cheney serving as the vice-president and Rumsfeld as the secretary of defense. Following 9/11, the Bush Administration distributed American troops around the world instead of placing them in reserve for when they’re needed. By having troops around the globe, the Administration felt they could properly prevent any attack or threat to the United States.
One aspect of the book that I found better than most books is that he shows you a perspective of both sides. McCullough’s intent was not focused strictly on the Americans, as he also sets you in the lives of the British Generals. Another aspect I enjoyed is how he didn’t give George Washington the image of being perfect that we normally think of him as. He was very indecisive, and had to be talked away from his decisions several times. He lets us know the other side of Washington, yes, he’s a great war General but he is not a great tactician or strategist.
